Summary

​Cooperation between Neste Oil and DONG Energy on renewable fuels

Neste Oil and DONG ENergy have initiated a cooperation to develop an integrated process to produce renewable diesel and aviation fuel from agricultural residues.

DONG Energy will provide their Inbicon technology that allows to produce cellulosic sugars from agricultural residues. It will be used in the first part of the process to pre-treat biomass and produce cellulosic sugars that will further be converted into microbial oil with Neste Oil's technology. Microbial oil can be used as a feedstock to produce renewable fuels such as renewable diesel and renewable aviation fuel.

Neste Oil and Dong Energy have already passed the laboratory and pilot ph​ase, and the technologies must now be optimized and verified on a larger scale. DONG Energy will use Inbicon’s demonstration facility in Kalundborg in Denmark to optimize the yield and performance of the biomass pre-treatment to perfectly match Neste Oil’s microbial oil process. Neste Oil has been running a microbial oil pilot plant in Porvoo, Finland since 2012.
